Pledge manager killed me (as expected), but I was finally able to nail things down.

My base pledge was for a starter cavern. Rather than go full Underdoom like I originally planned, I grabbed the individual packs that make up the encounter (all standard paint) so I could grab extra of some and leave out duplicates that I didn't feel I needed (like swapping out the UD terrain tray pack for a mix of others, dropping a vile mushroom pack). That freed up just enough space to grab a few more adventure packs for bling that I really wanted, some stilts, extra stone banks, floor pack and a crooked corners pack. Finally, I went full dreadhollow with an extra light forest floors, an extra escarpment + corners, and four forest banks.

I am extremely happy with this pledge (even if my wallet isn't...). I really appreciate DF breaking things down the way that they did. It was a lot of work to figure out the optimal combos, but was done in a way that I feel let me get everything I really wanted without a lot of dead weight. The fact that they were so flexible in offering the additional paint schemes is just a bonus. I would've loved to go in on the underdoom paint scheme, but being able to squeeze a few things like the adventure packs, crooked corners and stone banks all into the same paint scheme sealed the deal for me.

I absolutely can't wait for this to get delivered. KS5 will hold me over for a bit, but I could not be more excited to get these caverns and forests on the table.

I haven't seen many people go for the underdoom or underdoom core. I'm considering basing my pledge around the underdoom (with most of the bling packs stripped out): anything I"m missing? Is some combination of other sets a better value?
I think it has more to do with most people either needing basic cavern sets because they have none (like myself) or the fact that the underdoom plays more of a niche environment and with so many various options it has taken a back seat to things like ice caverns and DH. just my opinion
I got it because I think it is awesome. I believe that a lot of people passed on it because of the price of it. It is a huge encounter and almost a KS on its own. I can see where people will be getting it more once it hits the store than during the KS. I think much like the Burrows once they are out and people start seeing pictures of others using them they are going to want them.

love the pledge, but i cannot figure out the logic behind what is unpainted and what is painted ?!?!?

Is there a method to your madness or is it just simply madness?
I have done a lot of painting of DF stuff. Everything that is unpainted is super easy to paint, so it saves a buck or 2 here and there.
